ICE: Provides “relief from removal” to non-criminal illegals

You read that correctly. Entering this country illegally is not a crime

McClatchy News reports on the absurdly lenient immigration policy newly implemented by the Obama administration.

Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) assistant secretary John Morton has instructed the agency’s legal office to stop the deportation proceedings of foreign nationals — “without criminal convictions” —  who may now be eligible for a green card. Judges will be advised to dismiss pending cases.

In Liberal-land, entering the United States in violation of the law, obtaining falsified and often stolen documentation, such as Social Security cards, birth certificates and driver’s licenses in order to remain and facilitate living here illegally is tolerable and not criminal behavior.

Earlier this month, The Washington Times’ Jerry Seper reported that the union representing 7,000 boots-on-the-ground ICE field agents unanimously passed a 259-0 “vote of no confidence” for the agency’s leadership, saying ICE has “abandoned” its core mission of protecting the public to support a political agenda favoring amnesty.

Seper, investigative editor for the Washington Times, is a former reporter for the Arizona Republic. For that, we’ll forgive him.  But he knows the issues.

The union resolution said ICE leadership had “abandoned the agency’s core mission of enforcing U.S. immigration laws and providing for public safety,” instead directing its attention “to campaigning for programs and policies related to amnesty and the creation of a special detention system for foreign nationals that exceeds the care and services provided to most U.S. citizens similarly incarcerated.

ICE is a branch of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security headed by none other than former Arizona Gov. Janet Napolitano, a open-borders liberal who has long been loathe to implement enforcement polices in our illegal alien gateway state. While governor, she gained notoriety for this blasé retort when frustrated Arizonans pleaded for border action: “Show me a 50-foot fence, and I’ll show you a 51-foot ladder.”

    Our nation is up for grabs.
    Millions of illegals, not all of them Hispanic, and just nine years after the horrific events of September 11, 2001, will be granted a “get citizenship free” card after sneaking into the U.S. against our laws, and purchasing stolen ID. As long as they were not caught engaging in additional criminal acts they get the much desired prize of U.S. citizenship. What convoluted thinking brought us to this point in our history?

    Arizonans had a chance to back up SB 1070 by firing McStain and they choked. More illegals from Mexico will be poring over the border, claiming sanctuary and have it granted by the thousands. Drug cartels will gain greater influence in this country. This is simply the tip of the iceberg. Arizonans who will be on the front lines: lock and load.

    So what do we do? The days of watching our country going to hell in a hand basket are over with.

    What are American citizens supposed to do, when our elected officials (both R’s and D’s) fail to uphold the law, the very law they swore to uphold?

    Voting new ones in hasn’t worked in the last several elections. When to we bring back hanging facing a firing squad for high treason? And just which Congress has the intestinal fortitude to not only enforce it’s responsibilities, but tell the UN, CFR, and other “global entities” just where to go?

    I’m just asking from a strong, practical POV. What will Americans do? Sit around and watch our country’s very fabric deteriorate as it has, or fight back? And if so, how?

    Obama has to jump start the Dems voter registration drive, sign up those illegals. Where else are the Dems going to get voters? Sherriaz – you better get your ammo quickly – the O’s EPA is looking to ban lead in bullets???!!!! His backdoor attack on the 2nd Amendment, whereas his frontal attack on the Country by not protecting our borders.

    “…has instructed the agency’s legal office to stop the deportation proceedings of foreign nationals…”

    They can’t vote for AMNESTY-JOHN (again) and for the d-crat socialists in November if they’ve been deported. DUH!

      Why is it called an “administration”? The word “administration” denotes a respectful, lawful, legitimate operation. How about “regime”?
